Stand With Indigenous People of Brazil - SAVE THE AMAZON

Slowing down the climate change with Zero D

Because ancient forest stocks a tremendous amount of carbon, they will release a huge quantity of greenhouse gas effect, if they are destroyed. Before reforesting, it is urgent to slow down the global deforestation.

Acknowledging native territories and their autonomy is a fundamental right recognized by the United Nations Chart of Human Rights, but a number of States keep scoffing it.

Zero Deforestation is a solidarity initiative for land restitution to Native people, either through a legal process when possible (Ecuador, Peru) or by buying back acres of lands when settlers inhabit the area (Colombia).

Thanks to your help, vast natural spaces rich in biodiversity will be protected from shameless exploitation, whether it be forestry, mine, oil or agriculture.

Every hectares of Amazonian forest saved enables to protect many vegetal species that could be useful in the future and stock 650 tons of carbon, the equivalent of the amount of emission generated by 24 millions km with a light car !(Source)

The Amazon is the planet's largest remaining rainforest, teeming with more wildlife than anywhere else on Earth. But this majestic rainforest is caught between the twin destructive forces of deforestation and climate change. Greenpeace is campaigning for an end to deforestation in the Amazon by 2015 and globally by 2020.

You can sign up here to get involved, or try our Find A Brazilian app to help us get 1.4m Brazilians for a zero deforestation law.

PETITIONS

Save the Amazon!

To President Dilma Rousseff:

We call on you to take immediate action to save Brazil's precious forests by vetoing the changes to the forest law. We also urge you to prevent further murders of environmental activists and workers by increasing law enforcement against illegal loggers and ramping up protection for people at risk from violence or death. The world needs Brazil to be an international leader on the environment. Your strong action now will safeguard the planet for future generations.






Save the Amazon Rainforest

The amazon rainforest is the largest rainforest in the world. It covers 2.5 million miles of South America. But this magnificent rainforest is in trouble.

    STOP THIS INSANITY! The world is going implode if the greed is not reigned in. We can not continue to rape, pillage, and plunder our environment and resources. The people of the Amazon have a right to retain control of their lands. This is no different that settlers "settling the west" because it was not occupied. The people of the Native American Nations occupied that land and were herded onto reservations, so the white man could settle it and make it productive. Sadly,the people of the Native Nations have suffered ever since. Don't let this happen to the people native to this area. With the destruction of their lands come air and water pollutions, plus loss of habitat for birds, animals, and fish.

    ....Untitled......

    You take away the beauty
    In return you give us pain,
    Our forests are disappearing
    The animals the same.
    All for what you call, a better world
    Where happiness is found
    It was here in the beginning
    We just didn't look around.
    We are left with devistation
    Nowhere left for us to turn
    They have goverened this land,with a rod of iron,
    it's their turn now to learn.
    They cannot treat the people
    The way that they have done,
    The people now should reunite
    and the world would become as one.

    All of the indigenous peoples are under threat, mostly from us so called civilised ones- we should be learning from them how to respect the earth and the animals and plants not destroying both them and their way of life- when will we learn that it is us who are the destroyers- it's our ways our corruption and greed which is destroying both us and the world as we know it

    Corruption is here because we live in a male dominator world, and util we change the way we think we will continue into the dominator life. When we start living and thinking in a female co-operative world view things will be different. Read books by Riane Eisler and pass them on.....join movements like Thrivemovement. Live and think co-operatively. If we continue in this world view that we are in we will destroy the world that feeds us like any common parasite.

    All of us use Paper, all of us use plastic and everyone doesn't even bother to find out how it gets made. Yes people... Companies cut down amazing places like the stunning Amazon to make paper from trees, to produce plastic from the dug up oil and in the process EVERYTHING around these companies DIES! Just so that we can have our glorified plastic bottles to drink from and our pathetic money to keep on spending it on useless goods.

    It is the cutting down of the rain forest that is heating up our western hemisphere. Over time it would produce climate change turning our midwest into place no longer suitable for agriculture. A drought across much of the nation currently you say? I saw all of this coming since 1978. When Japan was in charge of the World Bank Brazil wanted money. So they gave Brazil an installment loan to cut down the rain forest. Cut down 10% get 10% money. Pointless unless you want to screw us and us alone. it is the plant life that sustain the rainforest, not the soil; it produces huge amounts of O2; it cools the whole hemisphere at the equator whish otherwise must be cooled by rising temporatures in the ocean. Anyone with any knowledge of geography knows the result of that move over time would be climate change in the North American midwest. They fucked us hard.

  67. About the Kogi Indians - Sierra de Santa Marta - Colombia/They say, we are doing so much harm that they cannot put right what we are doing wrong. The Mother is suffering, aluna is in pain, and the earth itself is critically sick. So, they say, as we cut down more and more forests, take out more and more of the earth’s minerals, burn more fuels, so the rivers dry up, the rain diminishes, new diseases appear, and human society itself becomes more violent and unstable. The Mother is sick, and they cannot cure her. Even the sacred sites where they make their offerings have been seized, the gold plundered, and the earth dug up to build power stations and new developments.
    The Kogi Mamas say we need to learn from them how to respect the world, and how to respect them. They believe that the only alternative is that we will destroy their world, and ours.

    STOP destroying our forests! The land is not yours to destroy. Without the trees, the world will die. All of the man-made buildings you are throwing up on these lands are left abandoned all across the world -- empty ... and THIS is what you are destroying the beautiful Amazon for ... you are not making the world better, you are ensuring your children's children's children will not have a healthy world to live in!

    If the dictator in Ecuador has his way there will be less and less unspoiled rain forest left due to mining and oil exploration.

    Makes me sick of how greedy mankind can be. The powerful the more they get, the more the want. I hate this destruction of such beautiful forest for the sake of a few rich b*stards. I hope the earth would swallow them whole as punishment.

    If you take away the land, you take away the way of life... It's happening now and our generation needs to speak up now not just for us but for generations after this. I do want my future children and grandchildren to read about the amazons from a HISTORY BOOK. I want my future children to learn from the environment and enjoy the beauty of the natural world instead of watching about the apocalypse, and wanting things that they cannot use in their life to make them better people and to connect with a community that helps one another. This affects everyone, so everyone should share responsibility to be a part of it. People do not despair, we can make a difference.. we just need to wake up! The amazon is still here, there is time left!

    WE have to stop hurting our planet and each other. We live in a time that if we do any more destruction, we destroy ourselves. People wake up and see that in order to survive things need to change. You only get to live one time, and your children do as well. What you do now affects everyone, you have a choice. Make the right one. Stop taking what you want and only what you need to survive and replenish that which you have taken out of greed.

    Be ready to tell your children what you did. You won't hurt as much as they will..
